Tata Ultras may launch in new variant, company releases video teaser on social media

  • According to reports, this could be a limited edition or a whole new variant
  • Current models are priced between Rs 5.44-8.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)

Tata Motors showcased the Ultras earlier this year and it has been a big hit for the domestic automaker. The premium hatchback has established itself as the third best seller in the segment with a premium package and is being sold in XE, XM, XM +, XT, XZ and XZ (O) variants in the price range ranging from Rs 5.44 lakh to Rs 8.95 lakh.

Currently available in two engine options

The 5-seater hatchback collides with the Maruti Suzuki Blaeno. As well, it also rivals the recently launched new generation Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. It is powered by a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. The older three-cylinder engine generates 86PS maximum power at 6000rpm and 113Nm peak torque at 3300rpm.

The next diesel engine generates 90PS at 4,000rpm and 200Nm of peak torque between 1,250 and 3,000rpm. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission only. Ultras is the first Tata Motel to be based on the ALAFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) platform and also a gasoline mill that powers the Tiago hatchback.

The company released a video teaser on social media

Therefore, a turbocharged version of the same powertrain is expected to launch next week. This latest teaser video has been released by Tata before Christmas. It shows the red ultras with the words "Your Santa ultras". Also, there is still confusion as to whether this car will be a limited edition or a completely new variant.

Recently, Tata has added new variants to its popular vehicles such as the Harrier and Nexon. If this turns out to be a 1.2 liter turbocharged petrol engine it will potentially generate a maximum power output of 110PS at 1,500-5,500rpm and a maximum power output of 140Nm and peak torque at 5,500rpm. It is expected to be introduced with a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional dual clutch automatic transmission.
